got the 1st one from Lowes for $3 i got the second tree as a cutting from a property in New Orleans
no tag it was a very old house in an old neighborhood and an established tree. the house was for sale for unpaid taxes, so i figured no one would mind i took a cutting LOL anyway... i have no idea what it is i just had 4-5 fruit the last 2 days. they were very good. somewhat sweet, but not overly so i picked them when they were soft (im still a newbie at figs) but , they didnt seem very dark colored. maybe its the rain ? its been raining for 7 days straight. back to tree 1 Tree #1 =================== Tree #2 this was the darkest colored one

I'm guessing the 2nd one is Celeste.
The first one might be Brunswick given the long-fingered leaves. However, the growth habit of the tree reminds me a lot of my Vasilika Sika (Belleclare) which is a Dalmatie type. Once you see the fruit it will help a lot with the ID. __________________ Steve MD zone 7a
